  • Wendy Darling
    They had an ordinary life, full of ordinary things--if love can ever be called that.

    I AM SO PISSED. I AM SO PISSED.Please allow me the indulgence of using an extended metaphor to describe this series.The first book is the first stages of love. It's not true love, but infatuation. You are ensnared by his looks, enamored by everything he does. His quirks are adorable. His faults are overlooked because it's a part of who he is. It's part of what makes him special. So what if he has a habit of scratching his ass in public? It's cute...

    That was an interesting conclusion to the trilogy. I can't say I'm super satisfied with how things came together, but it was still enjoyable! My main gripe with this series is it's lack of plot. I wanted more from the story, all three books feel like this build up to the ending, but nothing happens during those build up moments. (obviously this is just my opinion, you don't have to agree with me!)

    UPDATE:The more years pass- the more embarrassing this fucking review gets lmao. BUT ALSO- I have to admit, while Acomaf beat this ^ trash book in regards to storytelling, Acowar (Acotar #3) kinda sucked ass so like... y'all tread carefully and if anything- enjoy Acomaf only because I see that book as a standalone anyway.Also, fuck this book & the author lmfao.UPDATE:Okay so for those of you (like myself) who were disappointed with this ^ piece o...

    *5 β€œyou might make me a better man” stars* β€œI will strip away all that you know, all that you love, until you have no shelter but mine.” Agony. Pain. Tears. Heartbreak. Acceptance. This is the way the Grisha trilogy ends.A masterpiece. A gem. Leigh Bardugo gave everything she had in this grand finale. I'm numb and empty inside. I want to sit in silence and contemplate what happened and figure out the reasons why. I came to the conclusio...

    I know there are so many conflicting reviews on the ending to this amazing trilogy. I think my perspective is a bit different... for this reason: I literally could not choose how I wanted it to end. I know, I might be a terrible person. But..I was totally OK with all three ending scenarios. At the beginning of this book.. I was literally rooting for Alina to save the Darkling, Alina with Nikolai, and Alina and Mal. RIGHT? Come on, guys. You know ...

    REVIEW:Actual rating: 3.5 StarsSo. I am conflicted. I initially gave Ruin And Rising 4 stars. After like half an hour of deliberating and second-guessing my rating, I switched it to 3 stars. If you'll ask me in a week, I'll probably say it was a 4 star read. So to be honest, I think it's a 3.5 from me. There are several reasons why I did this to the last book of one of my favorite series EVER and I'm gonna complain about every one of them, so if ...

    This book was everything. πŸ’”πŸ–€πŸ’”πŸ–€πŸ’”πŸ–€ I'm so emotional right now *SOBS UNCONTROLLABLY* I'll try to review this tomorrow when I can see out of my puffy, blurry, traitorous eyes. 😭😭😭

    I'm like a bubble of explosive happiness right now! That was incredibly perfect I can't really find the proper words!!!But I'll try to anyways..........."What two things are infinite? The universe and the greed of men."This little point emphasized so much throughout this series. I adored every moment I spent reading this series. Although in my own experience I always love the first book in a series the most, because everything is so new and fresh...
